We can do without Russia’s missiles – Iran

Iran says it could soon have the technology to produce its own missile defense system. A senior Iranian lawmaker explained that Tehran may go it alone if Russia fails to provide it with air defense missiles.

Iranian authorities are criticizing Moscow’s apparent delay in delivering the S-300s. Russia agreed to sell the surface-to-air missiles to Iran four years ago.

Iran is at odds with world powers over its controversial nuclear and weapons programs.
